Business Intelligence Engineer
- Seattle, WA
When you attract people who have the DNA of pioneers and the DNA of explorers, you build a company of like-minded people who want to invent. And that's what they think about when they get up in the morning: how are we going to work backwards from customers and build a great service or a great product" - Jeff Bezos
Amazon.com's success is built on a foundation of customer obsession. Have you ever thought about what it takes to successfully deliver millions of packages to Amazon customers seamlessly every day like a clock work? In order to make that happen, behind those millions of packages, billions of decision gets made by machines and humans. What is the accuracy of customer provided address? Do we know exact location of the address on Map? Is there a safe place? Can we make unattended delivery? Would signature be required? If the address is commercial property? Do we know open business hours of the address? What if customer is not home? Is there an alternate delivery address? Does customer have any special preference? What are other addresses that also have packages to be delivered on the same day? Are we optimizing delivery associate's route? Does delivery associate know locality well enough? Is there an access code to get inside building? And the list simply goes on. At the core of all of it lies quality of underlying data that can help make those decisions in time.
